BLACK PANTHER – The first time it was revealed that Chadwick Boseman was cast to be BLACK PANTHER

It was April 2014, BlackTree was there for the big reveal

Chad Boseman talks about his new movie Draft Day, his upcoming movie Get On Up, and he addresses rumors that he is being cast as Black Panther in the upcoming Marvel series.

Chiwetel Ejiofor, Chadwick Boseman, Michael B Jordan and Idris Elba have all been linked to the leading role in Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ movie.

Latino Review’s resident scoop-master and tiresome tease El Mayimbe kicked off the rumour with a cryptic tweet saying the man set to play ‘Black Panther’ is on the cover of this month’s Vaniety Fair Hollywood issue .

Process of elimination means ’12 Years a Slave’s Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chadwick Boseman are front-runners, with ‘That Awkward Moment’s Michael B Jordan and Idris Elba also in contention.

Chiwetel Ejiofor would be a popular choice having wowed fan-films with his Oscar-nominated performance in ’12 Years a Slave’ but Chadwick Boseman is the most likely, given that he’s a young-up-and-comer.

However, Elba is already part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Heimdall in the two ‘Thor’ movies, and Michael B Jordan is strongly believed to be taking up the role of Johnny Storm in ‘The Fantastic Four’.

Clearly El Mayimbe, who has a fantastic track-record with rumours like this, has a big story up his sleeve, it’s just a shame he’s reverted to his cheap attention-seeking ways rather than getting a story and then publishing it.

A Black Panther adaptation has been rumoured for Marvel’s Phase Three of films for a while, alongside the already announced ‘Ant-Man’ , ‘Captain America 3’ and ‘Thor 3’ , as well as an all-but-confirmed ‘Doctor Strange’ movie.

Black Panther is the alter-ego of T’Challa, the ruler of fictional Marvel country Wakanda.
